Hello all,
I have a general question about how data structures work when they map
field names from externally described files:
Let's say I have this: (in RPG IV)
D  PAYDTE      
D        PAYYR               2    0
D        PAYMT               2    0
D        PAYDY               2    0
PAYYR, PAYMT and PAYDY are defined in PAYMASTR, an externally described
file in this program.  The 1st rec is read from PAYMASTR,  and
PAYYR = 98, PAYMT = 06, PAYDY = 22.  When storage is allocated for PAYDTE 
and its subfields, does the PAYYR field defined in the data structure
actually contain
98, or does it have the address of the location of PAYYR within the input
buffer?
TIA!
Dave
